John has been a business owner in one way or another since 1976 and became partner of Jim Litchfields in 2009

John adores classic cars and has an array of them himself including
a Ford GT40, Renault 4 Van, Jaguar XK150 and more!

John is now taking a back seat in running the garage but you may see him
at the garage on the odd occasion as he makes sure all is well. Although
he is in touch daily to keep up to date with all the goings on.

Andy has been a qualified motor engineer since 1980 and became a director of Jim Litchfield in 2009.

Andy loves gadgets of any sort and you will never catch him without a torch in one of his pockets!
Andy enjoys spending time with his dogs which goes well with his liking of big cars including his Toyota Hilux truck and not forgetting the Corvette Stingray C3 – although the dogs may not be allowed in that!

Andy due to health issues deals with the HR side of the business mostly but can be found in the garage keeping his hands dirty a couple of hours a day.

Chris has been a qualified motor engineer since 2010 and workshop manager at Jim Litchfield since 2016.

Chris loves re-building and converting engines, particuarly his VW Jetta Mk2 engine … it’s on the the third one!

Chris manages the team and the workload at the garage as well as the day to day running of the business. Although the office side of business is looked after by admin assistants Sharon and Louise who you will often speak to over the phone.

Chris has many specialities across the garage including diagnostics/electrics and fabrication. If he can save you money making a brake hose then he will!
